And there was joyous noise across the plains, and otaku of all ages cried out in praise at the de-confirmation of Zac Efron possibly playing Kaneda in the live-action Akira.

Digital Spy was told by a representative of the Hughes Brothers that the rumor circling the internet is "not true." Well, if they say so. Slashfilm still says that Warner Bros. is interested in Efron, but that it's "far from a done deal." So we're back to square one again.

Although we still have that Morgan Freeman rumor floating around, which still has neither been confirmed or denied. But I doubt the studios will speak out on that until, obviously, something concrete happens. The mere fact that all these rumors are popping up seems to indicate that there is activity at Warner Bros. to get this film off the ground, though.

As always, we'll keep you up to date.
